Robinia pseudoacacia

Robinia pseudoacacia Black Locust or False Acacia

Falsa acacia

This pretty tree is native to SE of America but has naturalised in temperate climes. It flowers from April to June and can grow to a height of 52 metres! The bark and the leaves are toxic, but it is thought that the seeds are edible.
